With less then two hours to go

Well I just had to sew this evening and this is what I have completed - My version of the "Every Day Angel" quilt, by the Chook Shed Pattern Co, from a few years back. I was lucky enough to be involved in a paper bag quilt (friendship quilt) with Tina and lots of other lovely ladies back in 2005, all of the Appliqued blocks were made for me and I had never got around to putting them all together until tonight.This totals 9 WISP finished for the month of January, at the begining of the month I pulled out 10 unfinished projects and now thanks to May Britts challenge I have completed 9 of them. I really hope this inspires lots of you ladies out there to drag out those old projects and finish them off, its a great feeling. Now I am ready to get stuck into some new shop samples for this years retreats, I'll keep you posted.

PS sorry I can't link, but blogger just won't let me.

Looks great Kerry. I still haven't finished my Cow Quilt from the same paper bag quilt group. But I did finish my paper bag quilt from way back in 2002 !!! That was my UFO for January, and I also finished off a set of 5 wall hangings I started in about 2001. I enjoyed the challenge.
So now I can start more projects to finish off NEXT January.
